Step Back in Time and Watch This Fascinating TV Interview with Victor Hasselblad from 1967 (VIDEO)

Everyone who loves photography is aware of the legendary Hasselblad cameras, but few of us know much about Victor Hasselblad himself—the man responsible for the iconic brand. The rare film below provides a unique opportunity to watch Hasselblad discuss his vision of photography in an interview broadcast by Swedish National Television in 1967.

Before Hasselblad appears live on screen, you get a tour of his quaint seaside home on the Swedish coast. Then the legendary camera designer discusses everything from his love of birds to his frustration with Japanese copies of his cameras. The interview is in Swedish, of course, but the subtitles are all you need to know what’s going on.

You’ll also get a look inside the company’s manufacturing facility and learn why NASA chose Hasselblad cameras to document their missions in space. So sit back, relax, and enjoy!
